i hardly think me explaining how i feel on the topic on MY OWN blog is out of line. if you don't like what you see, you don't have to visit. you have my intentions ALL wrong.

Celeste said...

I've always thought of this blog as nothing short of classy and tasteful. It would be naive to ignore such a major tragedy or to present it in anyway other than bri's honest and visually expressive style.

I think it's so important that you paused today to recognize the tragedy in Japan and convey your compassion. Your blog is always an inspiration - today included. xo

thanks celeste!

hi Bri, you are one of the few bloggers who mention Japan today... and that's very sad too.
My thoughts to them, it's so scary!

I know, I cannot believe Japan's tragedy, either, and feel more fortunate than ever to have a home and a car intact!

vanessa joie said...

no what's really classy is posting negative/snide comments as anonymous. bri is a star.

Kind of looks like an Anthropologie ad or something. You can say what you want on your blog, but this just seems a little tasteless--like you're trying to show off your "cool" even in a crisis.

just because i show how i feel in a visual way doesn't mean i am trying to look 'cool' - i felt like this photo represented how i was feeling. that is all. really wish you wouldn't twist it around like that, because it is very untrue. i think what happened is truly devastating.

Sorry, that's just how it looks to me.

bri. said...

no need for an apology. have your opinion, that is fine.

eliza said...

it is so awful what is happening in japan. and it saddens me that someone has the time and energy to bring more negativity into the world in light of what is happening. here's to creating a space of love and healing for those affected by this tragedy. and sending a hug to this anonymous person who obviously needs one!

Marie said...

i have family over there and it's nice to know other people have them in their hearts.

thank you
a lot.

Marie said...

and i think it is a wonderful post. amen to eliza's comment!

elizabeth antonia said...

Sorry anonymous person, but we all are in shock. It's a tragedy and there's no need for this.

Prayers to Japan.

Lucia said...

From this post, Bri, you have a huge your heart and it's loving, don't they know that. So sad that anonymous doesn't see a good heart when he/she sees one.

Your photo represents how I feel watching the news too. I love your blog Bri, it always cheers me up! Thank you for posting today :)

To be honest, I was a little confused when I saw the image at first glance. But then I realized that this is the way you communicate Bri: through images. I think it's wonderful that you pay homage to Japan this way. The way you know best. And it actually made me kind of sad to read a lot of blogs that didn't address this tragedy.
I can't even imagine what people in Japan are going through. Besos et bon week-end.

Michelle said...

Bri, can completely understand how you portray your feelings in your blog. How do you show feelings of empathy, helplessness and despair all in one image? Coming from a country recently devastated by a life destroying earthquake (NZ), I feel you have done no wrong, only acknowledged the tragedy in the best way you can. x.
